12 Easy Knitting Projects based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.
My 10 year old neice, who has been knitting for just over a year, is already working on one of the simple, yet fun projects in this book. The projects are all geared toward the preteen group and are practical. She is looking forward to tackling the more difficult doggie sweater and with the illustrations and a little help from her aunt, I think she will get it done.
